Media reviews
A first-rate natural history of the entire U.S.-Mexican border area.... [The reader] may profit greatly from the author's readable style and his sense of what is environmentally appropriate. - Sierra "... a book to be savored and pondered.... a great service to a very special land." - John Tveten, Houston Chronicle "... deeply rewarding reading for those even mildly interested in the environment and the region from the south of the Rio Grande to California's Imperial Valley." - Arizona Highways"
